VH1 confirms an Atlanta spinoff of ‘Love & Hip Hop’

No cast has been set for "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" but this is the cast from season two of the original.

No cast has been set for "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" but this is the cast from season two of the original.

The reality shows featuring bickering women keep on coming because honestly, the ratings keep on coming.

After a couple of rather dry years, VH1 has hit a ratings geyser with its soap-operatic reality shows such as “Basketball Wives,” “Mob Wives” and New York-based “Love and Hip Hop.” They’ve already spun off “Basketball Wives” into “Baseball Wives.” Now VH1 has confirmed that they are doing a “Love and Hip Hop” featuring Atlanta hip-hop ladies.

The second season of ‘Love and Hip Hop” just came to a close and a “reunion” show is set for Feb. 6. (Apparently, it’s not a true reunion but interviews with each individual ladies because some didn’t want to be in the same room together.) It drew comparable ratings to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ averaging close to 3 million viewers. The January 23 episode drew 3.15 million viewers. For VH1, that’s huge.

Atlanta, of course, is known as a major town for hip hop. Several folks in the hip-hop/R&B world from Atlanta have already taken part in reality shows, including Keyshia Cole, Toni Braxton, Chilli, Monica, T.I. and Tiny and Kandi Burruss, to name a few.  And if you go back a few years, there was Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.

In this day and age where selling albums is not a way to riches anymore, becoming a “brand” and getting your name out there via a TV reality series is the next best route.

Casting has not been finalized, according to a VH1 spokeswoman. I’ll update when we know who is on the cast.

This news comes on the heels of TLC’s “Preacher Wives,” also set to be based in Atlanta. Casting has not been finalized for that show either.

Another group of mainly uneducated loud-mouth insecure black women who have children out of wedlock for hip hop artists who use, cheat and abuse them. Women who do not feel they are valuable enough to be married. Women who feel they need fake Asian hair weave to feel beautiful. Forty-two year old Chrissy Lampkin is a credit card fraud criminal with whorish past.

Thank God, I had a stable and happily married mother and father who taught me the importance of being educated, independent and possessing SELF-LOVE. Yandy, Mona, Teairra Mari & Somaya are the only decent respectable women on the show.

The version in Atlanta will definitely be laced with violence, illegitimacy and low self-esteem creatures with self-hatred issues and those nasty weaves. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WEAR THE HAIR GOD GAVE YOU!

Peace Out!

[...] Good news for Love and Hip Hop fans!!! According to Access Atlanta Vh1 has confirmed that Love and Hip Hop Atlanta is coming soon! After having so much success with reality shows…why not keep the ball rolling. There’s no set date on when the Atlanta spin off will air and no word on who exactly will be in the cast. Some speculate that Diamond the former Crime Mob member could be a possible cast member if so she will make things interesting, but we’ll have to wait for the official word.
